"The seminar, intended for students and tutors, is aimed at developing participants' perception of social processes," - said lecturer Ani Ohanyan in a conversation with us.


With the help of modeling, the participants showed the basic prerequisites for the formation of a European neighborhood policy and the ability of residents of bordering countries to participate in them continuously. The participants discussed the values and peculiarities of life in the capital, as well as the policy of settling the conflict of interests.


The simulation game, designed for students, gave them the opportunity to comprehend the functions and activities of the EU political bodies.


According to the organizers, the seminar envisaged for tutors is aimed at identifying new, interactive teaching methods and discussing their practical application.


At the end of the seminar, students and lecturers received certificates.
